Protecting the Mission Training

Thank you for choosing to be a part of The Salvation Army and furthering our goal to reach out and meet the needs of the community around us. As a Christian church and organization, part of our responsibility is to protect whose whom we serve, particularly those who are sometimes unable to protect themselves. Every employee and volunteer (non-seasonal) with The Salvation Army Monterey Peninsula Corps is asked to participate in this training, and learn more about how we protect children and vulnerable adults that are part of our programs and family here on the Monterey Peninsula.

The first part of our requirements is an online training course. It typically takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

*Please note: The following videos contain information regarding sexual abuse of children and may be a bit intense for some people. The videos include interviews with former sexual offenders of children, however we feel they are done in a tasteful and beneficial way to help us here understand how sexual abuse can happen even in normal settings. If you are uncomfortable with watching these videos, please see our Volunteer Coordinator for an alternative training.
